his experience in the energy generation field to guide community choice aggregation to the creation of the clean power sf program and for those who have been working on this for so many years they know that -- i think all of us recognize that taking that job was a very courageous ookt on the part of mr. campbell. he crafted several proposals to ensure that the program had technical assistance and service provider in order to launch. he lead the negotiating team to acquire contracts for energy supply as well as back office services, critical launching to the program. he lead countless meetings between the puc and community advocates and the commission and reflected not only what we needed to see as a city agency and address the needs and concerns outlined by the advocates. mr. campbell's monthly updates to this body were instrumental in letting us know what was happening and we especially appreciate the fact that he always took the feedback into consideration and we wouldn't be here without his ability to do that. mr. campbell's commitment to clean power sf ensured a viable progr
and demand reduction of energy in san francisco during 2012. >> thank you. we have guilmo rodriguez from department of environment. >> thank you. guilmo rodriguez from the department. the department requests the committee's recommendation for approval of a & e item in amount of $156,000 to support the city's energy watch program. since 2010 when the city initiated the energy watch program the departments provided about 5.2 million in incentives for over 1,600 businesses and multifamily buildings in san francisco, resulting in a savings of about $6.8 million annually for energy needs. this $156,000 is an augmentation to our current program. the contract is through the end of this calendar year. it is to support our continued specifically our out days reach program in order to get more subscribers into our overall program. again, it is our outreach services. i will take the opportunity to share with the committee that the department plans to come back in the next few weeks with an additional a & e approximately in the amount of $3 million. there are a significant amount of interest in san
, department of the p.u.c. we have a capital funding program for renewable and energy efficiency projects. there is an amount set aside for those. it is actually part of the hetch hetchy revenue, it is paid for out of those funds. >> so this is p.u.c. funding, basically the ratepayer dollars going to pay for the solar project. >> yes, sir. >> is it available for all schools or was this a one-off exception? >> no. we actually entered into a master license agreement with the school district. so there is a program that is available for other schools. this is a ten-year license agreement with the school district, so there is a ten-year window where we can scout out other schools that might be available to do this. unfortunately our funding is limited. we used to have funding around the $6 million a year for renewable projects. it is now declining to about $1 to $2 million a year range. there will be a limited number of schools we can support. however there is another piece of good news. that is that this transbay cable funds that can also be available. so we will be getting $2 million in reve
polluted place to live, as may it in transportation, management of energy, in san francisco and in paris, there are innovations that are certainly ahead of many other cities in the world and i want to learn from san francisco and of course paris is there for the san francisco team, may it be a development of electric transportation or automobiles or [inaudible] or the reuse of energy of heat to heat private buildings or public building by using waste water, i explained to mayor lee that a couple of years now, i worked with bill clinton on the isolation of public buildings and specifically schools so that every year, we could renovate 100 schools in paris and the children are in heated rooms but where we don't waste energy. these are subjects on which we have a lot of common ambition and where we'd like to exchange our dynamic efforts between san francisco and paris. but what would be a cooperation between san francisco and paris without culture? in san francisco, there's so much talent, so much genius, so much creation of cultural events that i want to open my doors of paris to them, [in
're factoring into the program. we are prioritizing low income receipt of the energy efficiency and go solar incentive payments associated with this program. the board ordinance adopted appropriated additional $2 million to go solar sf for customers and additional $2 million funding of efficiency programs and also for clean power sf customers and after the vote we are under your guidance and directions targeting the expenditure as low income customers and in that area in san francisco for pg&e. we were directed to minimize these things and maintaining financial viability of the program. we are to offer low income discounts and hardship fund in the rate components we have adopted through this program. we are to conduct extensive, outreach, notification to all customers with special attention to low income and non english speaking communities. we are to have no departure charge during the first six months of the program and charging only a limited amount there after. we were talking about a $5 charge and we were payments for reserves in the program for the rates that are set. quite a fe
. the police surely don't have enough resources to be everywhere every minute. where do you put your energy. we think you should be putting your energy here. if we know these 20 intersections -- they're not all intersections, 20 locations are the worst and the most problematic, are where most people get hurt and should height vulnerable road users, people walking and biking, are 30 times more likely to be hurt at one of these intersections. if we know these are the problem, let's put our enforcement efforts there. i would be happe happy to go there and put our materials out. i would like to see the police department and the m.t.a. efforts focused on these locations. i would like to see you all coming back on an annual basis reporting, and letting them know how it goes. we know these are problem intersections, might will be a problem with the makeup of the street? possibly see. i'd love to see a report that actually comes back and shows you progress. just like the state of cycling, we don't know if we're doing better unless we track it and unless there is transparency there. in conclusion, i wan

that you have the energy to do as much as you do and that you're willing to continue to do that. so, it is my pleasure to see you reappointed. i do have a question about seat 14 for mr. lindner. i would love to be able to appoint you. but if you don't meet the legal requirements, there's nothing we can do. we did think about the idea, maybe switching the seats. i don't know if that requires that be re-noticed, but it seems even if we did that it wouldn't work. so, with that, i make a motion to reappoint paul giusti to seat 15 and move forward the positive recommendation in terms of seat 14 i think we need to wait until there is someone who is qualified. and, again, i would encourage you to please be involved. it's not that we don't want to see you. we just can't legally do it. so, thank you. >> so, we can move forward with that recommendation without opposition. i do also want to say, mr. lindner, i was incredibly impressed with your application leant night. i was looking at your qualifications and questions whether you met the legal requirement. i'm actually curious, and i'll speak
, and energy. today we get to recognize you. tomorrow, people will start yelling at you. it is part of that process. it is one we cherish no matter what body we're on. i know former mayor willie brown is here. i want to thank him for constantly being a support to all of our commissions and for being here today. i want to recognize each and everyone of you today by asking you to stand and be recognized as i call your commission and name out. for the board of appeals, we have an lazarus. joshua, thank you for being here. for the construction and workforce advisory committee, a body i helped to establish as city administrator, this body is going to be important for us because in our economic recovery we need to work better with our construction companies to make sure everybody has a chance to work in our city. bob alvarado, thank you for being here and part of it. ed riskin, thank you for stepping up again. florence, thank you. harland kelly, our general manager to be. thank you. kent, thank you for stepping up. yes, i will tell you what you are paid for after.

this developer can do, of the neighbors getting together to advocate to put time and energy towards this intersection, crosswalks, signal timing, whatever; need of improvements outside of the scope. other than that i am supportive of the project. seeing the 25 parkings, the project aims to have 40% two-bedroom units; there was an earlier iteration with less. >> ms. o'brian, project is subject to a number of fees. the have a ballpark figure that you have calculated as to what all these fees come to in total? >> i don't have the final numbers; they have not been verified by the planning department yet. it would easily be in the 500,000 dollar range or more for the community impact fees from market/octavia; in addition roughly 250,000 dollars for the affordable housing fee, separate. >> exclusive the below-market units? >> correct. does not include -- we are providing 20 percent for affordable. >> thank you. this might be a little off the subject. is peter cohen here? something directed to debose. it is not a question. a comment. directed to the other neighborhood groups. peter lewi
. and i will do my best as i [speaker not understood]. i will devote 100% of my time and energy to this position [speaker not understood]. like i said, i have enjoyed retirement immensely. there are others that say i should stay retired, and maybe they're right. at my age, you never know. but believe me, my love for the city is such that i think open government to me is priority number one, because if we don't have open government throughout the whole country, we don't have [speaker not understood]. that's something that i truly will work my tail off to assure that that continues to happen. and i will promise you that i will be every energy and every [speaker not understood] official in the city a fair and open hearing. that's all i have to say. >> thank you, mr. oh -- mr. oka. have you had an opportunity to attend one of our sunshine authority task forces? this is a question for you, mr. oka. my question was have you had an opportunity to attend or listen to a sunshine ordinance task force meeting? >>> i have attended one task force meeting in the last i think 4-1/2 years. so,
regulation. >> commissioner studley. >> i think on a cost benefit basis, it's a lot of effort and energy by us. by these folks. i don't think that $5,000 is going to change behavior. i think if there are places where it's appropriate to have individual penalties that suit the circumstances. i agree with commissioner renne, that may be a tool we may want to have available. individually for severe cases. if we are going to go to the trouble, i would rather explore the idea of whether we could put a hold on a more substantial amount. that would pause funding to the agency, which would be more attention getting than $5,000. and that may be far too complicated to do. but it seems to me we would be matching the frustration with the action of something that might get attention in the agency. now if it's not your first 5,000 and multiples of 5,000. then you start to have a problem. and then maybe on people's radar. so. if i expand my mind to picture rec rec rec recidism then maybe so. >> i think that a small amount would have an effect. especially with tight budgets, every amount will count. the
-- there are probably more dollars and energy going into that than any time since bart was put through the city. you have the eastern span of the bay bridge. you have the transbay terminal. you have the central subway project. you have the improvement realignment of doyle drive. all of these things are part of the hard wiring of our city that is going to influence the way in which we all interact with it. over the last, say, five to ten years, we have watched as development and interest and people have moved south of market, into mission bay, below that we now that is continuing and we now have projects on the table like the pier 70 project, which ten years ago no one would have thought was a viable mixed-use project, because nobody went there. and that part of it is no longer true. i think, you know, for all of the things that are going on in the new building that is in the ground, that is on the books, that is likely to happen this time around, both in terms of offices and housing, i think what i see as different is a difference in approach. we all know that it's being driven by what the demograph
and fabulous and water is really the new oil. water is extremely important to us. but also it gives us energy. we have hydropower from our water source, a lot of city, if not all of the city is powered, sfmta, possibly the city buildings is powered by the hetch hetchy and i don't want to give that up either. >> thank you. i will remind the candidates that if at any point they wish to jump in on a question they may do so using a time card. the next question is for miss breed, mr. johnson and miss selby. please explain whether you think sit/lie is working to address public safety as intended across the city and how you would reform it, if indeed you would reform it? miss breed? >> i did vote yes on sit/lie. i had a number of issues in the upper haight that were just really unfortunate situations and i thought there needed to be some sort of solution to the problem. unfortunately it hasn't worked. we still have some real problems in the haight and we need to make sure that the social service agencies that deal with mental health abuse issues, that deal with drug treatment issues, those particul
, artist designed fence panels, repaved tennis and basketball courts with fencing, energy efficient sports lighting, new planting irrigation and a clubhouse renovation that is going to be utilized as our inclusion ne'er and adaptive recreation center, so all of our children who have special needs and need some form of adaptive recreation assistance will be assessed at this new site citywide, it is a beautiful and joyous space, mission playground is q>on 19t and valencia, and it was formerly a strangely designed broken up space that felt unwelcoming and frankly unsafe, and to be out there on saturday morning watching kids play soccer all morning long, watching people on two different playgrounds on the basketball courts, tennis courts and what is now just a really gorgeous wide open community hub that will hopefully we leave some space from delores park, i want to commend our capital and [inaudible] staff, meagan was the project manager on this and the construction manager, and frankly my entire team for what was a great opening and is a very special new asset in the community. speaking of
korea, energy team, arnamit white, red. and jq morgan and the china team and so we look forward to welcoming them all back into town and on to the great bay. very exciting. as i mentioned we will be holding fleet week at exactly the same time. flee week will be october 3 to the 8th. so it will begin officially a day after the practice session for the america's cup. fleet week was started in 1981 and has a long tradition here in san francisco. it was started by mayor diane finestien and it is the third year that it is used not just to celebrate the men and women in the military services but also to bring together leaders from around the bay area and the federal agencies with the state agencies and the local agencies so that in the event of a disaster, situation, or an imagine situation, we have met each other and compared notes and we have a working relationship, and that was a vision embraced or created by general michael myatt a retired general who heads our fleet week committee and he calls that the senior leaders seminar which is something that new york is trying to replicate
valuable. because a lot of folks put tremendous energy into planning the future of those areas and want to have a sense of how those areas are doing on production, as well as the city as a whole. i know it's not a regional goal, but to be able to track these data is a valuable piece that i think is a little soft in here as revised. lastly i would say for the suggestions that supervisor wiener that you have, if there are more layers of information to be added in here, i think that is a good idea. i think the sponsoring supervisors were not trying not to layer too many expectations on staff. but if this data on a project-by-project basis or quarterly can also show the types of units and the types of housing, and even the 120-150, and we can do that from a data standpoint. i don't see why there would be anything wrong with that. i think this is taking the data as it is now and simply projecting it forward. so we're very supportive. thank you. >> >> good afternoon again, supervisors, my name is [tp-erpd/]o from the council of community housing organizations. again, thank you supervisor ol
must do this or we will sue you. there is lots of police time and energy and worse, there are many, many citizens who are getting really badly hurt for their iphones and their ipads. >> thank you, mr. resignato. >> i'm going to go back to transit issues. i think we need to double down on being a transit-first city, which means improving muni, so it's a viable transit option for everybody. i agree with increasing bike access and even experting with sunday streets, which is closing off a lot of your streets to car traffic. i think it's a great model, but i also think we have to do the simple things like fix the roads and sidewalks. there are a lot of places in district 5 where the sidewalks are in disrepair. i have had several friends who have tripped and fallen, but really who that impacts the most are the elderly and the disabled, who have a hard enough time getting around, let alone if the sidewalk is messed up. transit issues are important and i would like to see those things worked on and that is what i will do as supervisor. >> miss olague? >> as supervisor i have been worki
. i hope you will tell me that the brick will disappear, that we indeed have enough energy behind the rethinking of market street to talk about an appropriate response to materials, including guidelines how some of the new buildings need to be more engaging of the vertical and horizonal surfaces that face market street. and i think it's in that w weavg together where market will -- something that ages well, and something we don't have a dialogue because it's so good we don't have to think about it anymore. that is the signature of those strong streets, most of them being in europe, some of them being car-free like copenhagen, there are no cars on those streets but that's another story and i don't think it a i hope ta lot of time and a lot discussion and look at what other people do, what succeeds and what is in your budget. thank you pmpleddle thank you. commissioner antonini. >> commissioner antonini: thank you. a couple of things to add. the area between van ness and octavia is really unique to market street in your consideration, because there's so much often space there. there
